One of the most watched TV shows of the 1990’s was Seinfeld. The show grew from the idea of “a show about nothing” into the most watched show. Seinfeld follows the life of Jerry Seinfeld who is a comedian in the show and the antics of his good, short, quirky friend, George Costanza played by Jason Alexander. Jerry has a neurotic friend Cosmo Kramer played by Michael Richards. Jerry’s old girlfriend Elaine who is played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus. As the years of this show develop, they’re joined by a interesting cast of characters including Newman and Frank and Estelle Costanza,Uncle Leo and others.
Elaine’s character does not yet exist in the pilot episode and Kramer’s character who at the time was named Feldman is is shown as a unemployed, recluse neighbor not the usual quirky and energetic Cosmo we know. Playing in the role of the wise cracking waitress named Claire who is played by Lee Garlington doesn’t appear in later episodes .These opening episodes show the development of the show’s four main characters with George’s admission that he’d like to be an architect (episode 2) to Kramer’s get rich quick schemes like a make-your-own-pizza pizza shop (episode 4).
Seinfeld DVD (Seasons 1 & 2) gives a glimpse into the world of Jerry Seinfeld, starting with episode 1 “The Pilot” in which the first scene involves Jerry making comments to George about a button that is on his los angeles dodgers t shirt same From day one Seinfeld establishes itself as must see TV show. “The Stock Tip,” “The Pony Remark,” “The Deal,” and “The Chinese Restaurant”are all memorable episodes.
The initial episode show flashes of brilliance that made Seinfeld a most watched series. The show which is essentially about nothing, shows Jerry and George do some laundry. Jerry and his neighbor watching some TV. George and Jerry having some coffee. During which, the conversation is about a girl that Jerry met while on the road with his comedy act. She wants to stay with him, but Jerry doesn’t know if he should put out a mattress for her or not. Kramer, Jerry and George debate what should be done endlessly. The woman arrives and Jerry finds out that it’s all for not because she’s engaged.
